The location is great but overall mediocre time. The negativity stem from the dirty water glass I caught myself too late I was drinking out of. It was pretty disgusting. The manager was able to rectify the issue by comping the drinks and one of the appetizer but after seeing the water glass, everyone was wary of their utensils and dish ware. Also, the oysters had a LOT of shell shard inside the oyster itself. Every oyster had four to eight pieces of shell inside the meat which made it hard to enjoy. We like the decoration but the overall quality did not match unfortunately.

Surprising location. Super nice, casual ambiance at a local hotel. Wait staff was outstanding and the food was excellent! I was celebrating my birthday with my dad and we both loved it!

The staff was very gracious and helpful. I had the overnight oats, and was not impressed with the flavor. The oats themselves were not seasoned either with salt or sweetness (honey, agavé, etc). I would rethink this dish. However, the staff has a very welcoming attitude and the location is very pretty. I would recommend for these reasons.

This place is a hidden gem that I don’t wanna share too much so that we can’t get in. The place is amazing, seating on the balcony has umbrellas, the service was awesome (EVEN CONSIDERING IT WAS BOTTOMLESS MIMOSAS) and the food was outstanding (brunch had a great variety to choose from) and SOOOOO reasonably priced! 2 adults (one drinking) and a tween got out for $60 (tip not included). It was an awesome experience. Not only WILL we be back but I can’t wait to go back!! They get 2 very enthusiastic thumps up from me!! (Is given them more thumbs but I only have 2) :)

Drinks are great! Bartenders really know how to make a cocktail. Food is not as good as used to be. Hate to say but I had the worst Pad Thai I ever ate there. Lettuce wraps used to be really good and now are different and just passable.
Great ambiance and drinks and service but food needs improvement. Go for the drinks and you’ll be more than happy.

The restaurant is located in a Kimpton hotel which is one of my favorite hotel chains and that hotel is only a block off from the beach near the Huntington Beach pier. I thought the quality of the food was quite good. We ordered some Thai coconut soup, oysters on the half shell, and some tacos as well as some chips and guacamole. I thought the food was tasty. The service was also very good. Although they made a mistake in giving our tacos do another couple, they made good on the mirror quite quickly and paid for our tacos without our asking or having that expectation.

Overall I thought the experience was quite good. They bordered on a five-star experience overall given everything into consideration, however, was not quite fully at that level. Make no mistake however, I would recommend this restaurant and we look forward to going back.

Went on Friday night. Tables dirty and some had place settings but many did not. Our server was friendly but slow and the place was not full. I ordered the crispy whole fish : it was a whole carcass with 7-8 deep fried fillets like a traditional fish & chips served on the carcass. At first I thought the “ bundles” were tempura and was shocked that there wasn’t fish meat left on the bone... it’s a whole fish- even the photo on the webpage hides the “ bundles”. I’m Asian- we eat whole fish often .. this was very disappointing. The crab cake appetizer was great and the cocktails over priced. The wait staff did try but not enough working on a busy holiday weekend but the poor representation of a cultural staple- a whole fish makes this place a huge “ never again” The Kimpton hotel , in which this restaurant is in, should really reconsider this eatery.

Food was horrible. My Ahi had absolutely no taste.
My husbands meat had a large 3x3 piece of fat.
Very disappointing. They must have a new chef.
We were there 3 months before and the food was so tasty that we booked a rehersal dinner there in Nov.
I sure hope the fall menu brings tasty food again or we are in trouble.

Server stopped by, asked if we wanted drinks, and then disappeared for 20 minutes. 20 actual minutes; we timed it. We were waiting for drink menus and asked the host where our server went. We just got a flat, blank “oh sorry”
So disappointed with the lack of professionalism.

We waited 30 minutes after our 12:15 reservation to be seated. I understand it was a holiday but the same excuse of “your table is being set up” kept being used. When we were seated no server ever came. I had to get up and ask a manager to take our orders.

We had to ask someone random for water and never knew who our server was. When we wanted a refill for 3 of our 5 mimosas the person we asked told us to ask our server and we didn’t know who that was.

I understand restaurants are busy for holidays like Father’s Day but I don’t think it’s too much to ask to have basic levels of service.
